Hi. I have the shingles. I need to get rest and no stress. Can I get a doctor to admit me to the hospital for that?
Probably not: When we admit people to the hospital, it has to be recognized as medically justifiable or insurance won't pay for it. It would have to be a very extreme case of shingles (which is possible, but quite rare) that would warrant hospitalization. No insurance company would cover that. If you can afford to pay out of pocket for that, then you are better off going on vacation and staying in a hotel. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably not: Indications for psychiatric hospitalization are much different today than they used to be. Today, one gets hospitalized if there is no adequate treatment involving less intensive containment. So, if someone isn't acutely in danger of suicide or harming someone else, or if judgment isn't so impaired as to put him or her in danger, then another option is usually employed. Talk to your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
You can't: Sorry. The system is changing. Many hospitals now have "hospitalist services" who take over when you're admitted. Even in hospitals using the older system, your doctor must necessarily be in an "on-call" schedule since he/she can't be available all the time. Electronic medical records make "hand-off" communications excellent though. I advise that you see your doctor in the office after discharge. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 7 month old may have pneumonia we have been admitted to the hospital. Doctors cannot decide if the X-ray is accurate what should I do?

If kid looks sick and the chest xray is not that helpfull. It's better to admit and treat. Give it time, and your kiddo will get better. There is an old saying in medicine "treat the patient, not the xray.". ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
How do I get to be admited to hospital with cronick chest pain I do see my doctor but i, m still sick in daily for long time just like further testing?
Unlikely to happen: In this age of medicine, patients typically do not get admitted to the hospital for a "workup". Evaluations are done as an outpatient. Admissions are for acute problems. Even my elective open heart surgeries come into the hospital on the day of surgery. The workup for surgery is all done through an outpatient approach. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What may cause a leg to leak clear fluid in an 86 year old lady? The dressings are being changed every half hr or so. Should she be admitted to the hospital? Her doctor put her on a five day antibiotic, but it continues to leak.
If she has an infection (as the antibiotic prescription suggests), that alone could cause some fluid to weep from the site.
If not, the causes of fluid leaking from the skin are tied to increased fluid pressure in the tissues. This can be caused by a blockage in the veins or lymphatic ducts that drain the leg, or by severe heart failure or overall fluid overload (as seen with kidney and liver failure). However, in the case of major organ failure, it is unlikely that the leakage would be limited to one leg.
It sounds like this is a pretty significant problem with dressings needing to be changed as often as you indicate. Given her age, and the difficulty that she likely has in managing these dressing changes, hospitalization might not be a bad idea. Certainly, if it's been more than a few days since she was seen, and if things are not improving, she should at least be seen again by her doctor. ...Read more
